Dear PDHC Friends,
As Chairman of the Board of Pregnancy Decision Health Centers it is with mixed emotions that I announce that Julie Moore has submitted her resignation as President of PDHC and the Board has reluctantly accepted it.
Julie is prioritizing her family, and we pray for a season of blessings for Julie and her children. She will be greatly missed. But we are happy that she can make this decision, after 20 years of outstanding service, knowing that PDHC is in a very strong position.
Julie took on the role of President in June 2017. Since then, PDHC has provided more services to our community than ever before, including a record high of 1,022 lives saved last year! As our 2019 Community Impact Report shows, great strides were made under Julie's leadership, such as a 49% increase in center visits during her presidency. Julie implemented a new strategic planning process with the Board of Directors and improved operations and organizational processes. Last year, Julie led PDHC in becoming part of the Abortion Pill Rescue Network, and already we have one healthy baby (still in the womb) whose mother reversed her abortion with the help of PDHC.
We are deeply grateful for all Julie has done. We sincerely thank her for her servant-leadership and care of this ministry.
Kathy Scanlon, PDHC's Director of Community Engagement, will serve as Interim President effective today. Julie is committed to a smooth transition and will be available through the end of February. We are confident that Kathy and the PDHC staff will make this a seamless transition for PDHC's supporters and the women and families they serve.
The Lord has assembled a gifted staff at PDHC. The PDHC staff is well prepared for the year ahead. We will continue to have an impact for Jesus Christ while we conduct a search for PDHC's next President. Women, families and babies in our community will be served because of our strong commitment to Christian ministry and helping those in need.
The Board of Directors will discern and oversee the process of choosing another passionate and effective leader for this point in PDHC's history. We thank you for your continued support and prayers for PDHC and those who seek its help.
Ron Thomas, Board Chair
